    Police Procedural - Murder Mystery

    Killing Time by Mark Roberts DCI Eve Clay #4 Coming into a series on book four left me wondering about a few things BUT the premise for the book sounded intriguing so I went for it. I have read the blurbs for the first three books, signed up for the book release blog tour, have, read promotional material and it all became a bit clearer when I finished researching. That said, my gut feeling is that someone coming into the series on book four might feel a bit lost and out of the loop not knowing Eve or her team all that well. Many names of colleagues and a few snippets about them as well as support characters is shared and half my notebook had names with job descriptions by it. My gut feeling is that the book could have been pared down a bit either by condensing the interviews that are predominately “no comment” or perhaps in some other little ways. I hate to give away plots or steal the stories secrets and this one is full of twists, turns and surprises. The bad guy might not be who you think it is and the good guys might be a whole lot less good than you think. What is propelling the murders and violence doesn’t come out till the end even though the assumption is that the crimes are hate crimes based on race with some feeling superior to others as they are whiter than those they do away with. There are some VERY sick and disturbed people in this book and I am not sure how they became that way…even knowing would not make what they did make sense, though. If you are looking for a well plotted, action-packed, mystery that is solved through police working hard and following procedure then this book might be for you. Sometimes I say I would like to have the characters in the book as friends…can’t say that about this book. Thank you to NetGalley and Head of Zeus for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    3.5 Stars! Disturbing, menacing, and tortuous!

    Killing Time is a complex tale that immerses you into the hunt, evidence collection, and investigation of a serial killer with a penchant for fire. The prose is dark and eerie. The characters are devout, fanatical, and manipulative. And the plot is an incredibly twisty tale that delves into a world filled with deception, mental illness, obsession, malice, hatred, religious indoctrination, violence, and murder. Killing Time is the fourth novel in the DCI Eve Clay series, and even though I found a few parts a little hard to follow in the early part of the story and could never pinpoint why it was set in the future rather than present day, it was still an entertaining, fast-paced, gripping read that fans of police procedurals will certainly enjoy.

    A great read

    This was an excellent read with some very scary characters. DCI Eve Clay and her team had their hands full in bringing down the evil doers. I am late to discover Mark Roberts and his leading DCI's David Rosen and Eve Clay. His books are the kind that draw you back to his writing. He makes you want more, so I hope he continues to develop his stories.
